. there are people who want to serve when the economy changes, could impact this? yes. but right now, i feel it is not impacting our recruiting. it does not impact our quality operationally, and hopefully that will continue. >> you have been in the job for a little over a year now. god willing and things go right, you have three more years to go. i know that much of the decade before you took this job, it was not in the middle of the night and waking up and saying, what would i do if i was the chief? you have other things on your mind. what has surprised you the most in coming into this circumstance? >> well, i think, -- i guess i've got to be careful. one of the things i tell everybody what i was the commander in iraq and the commander of the core there, have the freedom to make some pretty significant decisions. that freedom is not quite the same here in washington. that is probably one of the biggest adjustment. i had to realize i did not have complete autonomy. i knew that, but it took me a while to understand that really. the real challenges that we have are that we have this large orga
days left to vet two choices for president. 11 days left before we decide who will oversee the economy and security and well-being for the next four years by a wide margin. the most important issue to every group polled says the economy and jobs is the number one issue to americans. that in mind, let's take a look at the two candidate, what they're doing today. governor romney has been delivering a major economic address to voters in iowa. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment. that can bring america's family to certainty, that the future will be better than the past. >> eric: president obama on the other hand, has a different agenda. today he is hanging out with mtv. look, it doesn't matter what you think of romney. what matters is this. do you really want four more years of obamanomics? check out the latest poll from abc/"washington post." when asked who do you trust more to hand the economy? romney 45 #%. president obama 43%. nine-point difference is huge. we have 1
, and it is still all about the economy. so we'll start with a great panel to talk about the american economy. what is actually going on. >>> then, you've often heard that fracking is controversial. why? we have a debate to help you think it through. >>> and do you think you have enough money? what would be enough? we'll have a fascinating discussion on the subject with lord robert skidelsky, britain's most prominent economic historian on how to answer those questions. >>> and why in the world did the nation of mali get more mention this week in the foreign policy debate than all of japan, mexico, or europe? >>> first, my take. the international monetary fund's latest world economic outlook makes for gloomy reading. growth projections have been revised downward almost everywhere, especially in europe and the big emerging markets like china. yet when looking out over the next four years, coincidentally the next presidential term, the imf projects that the united states will be the strongest of the world's rich economies. u.s. growth is forecast to average 3%, much stronger than that was germany or f
is at stake. it is a critical time for the country. we face challenges, massive debt, and an economy that is not putting our people to work. young people coming out of college can't find work. china, which is going to be a major economic power. it has been taking a lot of jobs from people in ohio, with radical violent jihadists. this is a big election about big things, and i am proud we are focusing on what we'll do to bring real chance to a country that needs it. we have a president today that -- has a different view about guesus being on the right track. my view is that this is a turning point for america. and those people who want change from day one will vote for paul ryan and myself. as i go across the country, i recognize that people don't want 23 million americans out of work, looking for a good job. they don't want administrations compftablfortable with trillion dollar deficits and kids not getting jobs out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. over the coming days, i will talk to people across the country about what those changes look like. this is deta
for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our government. there was a democrat named john f. kennedy. he had it right. ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. the way i was brought up. democrat or republican. that was patriotism. the obama late night talk show mirn tour continued th
? >> polls show americans care more about the economy and jobs. polls show voters think romney can fix the economy and create jobs. but the media aren't connecting the dots. why not? find out next on news watch. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of hear
reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a tenth of a point higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad news is that unemployment among african americans jumped almost a full percentage point from 13.4% to 14.3%. that is a disaster. also, the real unemployment rate in october was 14.6%, including people who have given up looking for work. bottom line, 12.5 million americans who want to work, can't find employmen
to accelerate the economy and grow jobs. in order to do that, we have to have a congress that knows how to work together. i learned some valuable lessons as mayor and governor. one started here on this campus. in 2008, we were going through what became the worst recession in 75 years. your president, and other university leaders, came and said, times are tough. why do we not do a construction campaign on the state colleges? there was an idea to build a virginia tech school of medicine. i worked together and by the end of it, we did a $1.4 billion -- that is to revitalize the roanoke economy. it was about jobs, public, private partnership, education, infrastructure. i have a long jobs plan. i just summarize it. democrats and republicans have to work together. that is what is needed in washington. that is how i have governed. that is the u.s. senator i will be if you send me and i have a chance to serve. >> thank you. >> thank you for watching. susan and i have been listening to the people of virginia. they want leaders to work together to get our economy back on the right track, create jobs, sto
to stimulate the economy is hire more teachers. well, the answer to that is, of course they would say that, they are teachers. i think the best thing to stimulate the economy is to hire more conservative journalist. [laughter] >> i think it is just self-evident that that would work. [laughter] >> that is logic to consider that it rejects other forms of federal spending. there is also a form of keynesianism that sweeps into conservative economic thinking once you get into defense spending. they begin to talk about the loss of jobs at the close on a military base and the multipliers that we have is the hairdresser who, you know, is cutting the true terror won't have a job that point. that may come on some level be true. i could be argued with every program. with other programs we look in terms of how that money could otherwise be spent and who might otherwise be employed and what other economic opportunities are lost as a result of the government spending. but when it is defense spending, conservatives have a bit of a blind spot with that. the purpose of national defense is defending the nat
the final stretch is going to be dominated by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip the scales. we have seen now an argument from the president that is about trust. and this is how he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander in chief is trustworthy, that he means what he says. that he's not just making stuff up depending on whether it's convenient or not. >> how is he using that argument to advance the cause of, hey, you can't trust what you're going to get that's going to ultimately lead to economic recovery under the republicans? >> i think that the president, as the race gets narrower and narrower, we focus on smaller places and smaller numbers of voters. we see that become a resonant argument. we're talking not just about the economy in the midwest, we're talking about the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this week went to defiance, ohio, and told a gro
sandy and all, regardless of what happens in the end it will have a big impact on the economy and the administration says, it is improving and we got the latest hint of that, the final jobs report, before the leck and that is, surprising spurt, better than 170,000 jobs, added, plus to the economy and unemployment rate of 7.9%, and back with us is jack welch, who might quibble with the rate, in about the last time and you still don't necessarily buy these numbers? >> neil, look, the real unemployment rate, take the last ten years, prior to 2009 recession, ten-year average of what is called the participation rate, how many people are working, temporarily, full-time, and, you take that number, and you take ten-year average, and you run it now with the workforce. you have an unemployment rate close to 11% and that is what the real unemployment race, people are feeling, out there. now, garbage workers have walked away and that is the real rate and the number, 7.8, that popped in the other day, didn't make any sense. i mean, you had a number that said we had more people added, since
, this means jobs and the economy is an issue that is certainly front and center ended is the number-one issue, but it may not bring home as much as other issues -- ring home. host: what are the swing areas of that states that have historically provided the winner with the electoral votes? guest: by now we are seeing that the candidates are coming into -- particularly the president's campaign has been coming into the sea coast, rockingham county area, cities like rochester are certainly areas that are indicative of what may happen in this election. but the other location candidates are coming into is the city of nashua, the second- largest city in the state. we are seeing the president was there a few days ago last saturday. it seems to be a place that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup lo
. they were ecstatic about the economy coming back. >> happy days are here again. >> consumer confidence suspect. anticipating better unemployment number tomorrow. if that happens, and i believe it will, then the obama team dominates the news cycle for friday, saturday, and sunday. and the romney team doesn't really have any way to reply. they can't poo poo it because that would seem chir issue will. >> we knew this though, right? o. >> we will see what the numbers are. i really don't think it's going to make any difference in the final four days of this election. >> bill: you don't believe that's what the press is going to do. >> the press as you and i have talked about, the press has been, i think, at its lowest point in the credibility and reliability in this presidential election cycle. i think after this election is over, there is going to be hell to pay for the american people for a whole bunch of reasons. >> bill: there is going to be polling -- >> -- i don't think it matters. there are a whole bunch of people in this country after this election is over, they didn't think the pres
. donate today. >> steve: it will be the last major report card on the economy. the labor department releases monthly unemployment rate. right now it stands at 7.8 percent. economist expect it to go up to 7.9 percent. it is estimated that employers added 125,000 jobs last month and that is up from september and fall short of what is needed to cut the jobless rate. we'll bring that number to you live as it is released from washington. meanwhile new accusations. votes switched from mitt romney to obama. rnc learned of cases in nevadathey are asking the states to recalibrate all of the machines. and have additional technician on hand and use signs to make sure people check their vote. there is no evidence of problems but check your ballot, gretch. >> gretchen: 47 out of 51 times the presidential candidate who won the popular vote has won the electoral. experts believe that mitt romney will win the popular and president obama will take the electoral college and win the white house. can that happen again? what do you think about that, pete? >> i think and firmly believe that mitt romney w
on the economy right before the election are not encouraging for the president. good morning, everyone. do you want gas? in the new york area, you will have to wait for hours, you want power? millions will wait for days, but it's the supply of gas that is today's crisis. driving to work will be almost impossible for millions. piled on top of the mass power outage, the whole nation's economy will surely take a hit. new numbers today, paint a grim picture on employment and it's a snapshot of the economy which remains weak. the latest fox news poll shows a dead heat and the candidates are tied five days to the election. we are we go. another big day. "varney & company" is about to begin. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td amer
in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can be really critical. host: thank you both for being with us on this news maker for this sunday. >> watch our newsmakers with rande paul again today at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. now watch our coverage of the presidentia
the economy around saying the president has failed to meet the challenge fay can the united states. >> the difference between us, he makes promises and he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. maybe you are frustrated about the pace of change but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth and you know i'll fight for you your families every single day. >> reporter: part of what the president said feeds into the narrative that governor romney is creating here. that he is a nice guy and means well but he doesn't put a take to get things done. something that happened yesterday, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney
of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen since 2010. you have romney momentum. you've got people, people decided that obama is incompetent. he can't run on anything. those are serious fundamentals. >> when we get to election day, people who are genuinely independent i think are going to break slightly our way in these battleground states. that is the data i'm looking at. >> there are many republicans, independents and democrats who aren't satisfied with the direction that we've been going in the last four years. they want a change. they want to go in a different direction. they want somebody to believe in them. they are doing that with their vote. >> we can't lose. we're going to take back america. we're going to keep it strong. we're going to overcome our challenges and keep america the hope of the earth. i need your vote on november 6th. get out and vote early. >> greta: we have more to break down the polls, minutes away. but disturbing information about benghazi. fox news obtained a classified cable from the mission in benghazi to the state departme
than on the day obama took office. he has not met on the economy or the budget or on jobs. with neither of the republican leader of house or senate since july. >> the president and governor romney reacting to the october jobs report. 171,000 jobs. the u-#, the broader, under employment rate if you will is 14.6. that is what it has been. then if you look at the adjusted unemployment rate, this is the unemployment rate is the labor force was equal to what it was in january of 2009. what about this and how it plays to the race? bill kristol of "weekly standard." kirsten powers for daily beast. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles? >> these are the numbers you get when you have a stagnant economy. stagnant unemployment. if you keep up with the numbers of jobs added, barely enough to keep up with the increase in population. unemployment takes up. people's perception of the economy have been fixed. unchanged for at least six months. so i think it has zero effect on the economy. on the election, i mean. in terms of the people who vote on the economy. so i think it's probably a
. they are all fired up! >> i know he that when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant. but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. and by the way, i'm not just going to take office on january 20, i'm going to take responsibility for that office as well. >> this is a choice not just between two candidates or two parties. it is a choice between two fundmentally different visions of america. it is a choice between going back to the top down policies that crashed our economy or assessing the kinds of policies that will make sure we have got a strong and growing middle class. that is the choice. >> i think if people look to the future they realize the last four years haven't worked and that mitt romney is the only one with a plan to turn things around. >> i want the election over with us i want to win it. i want to start moving forward. i want to stop this regression that we are in. economic recession. the silly transformation of america obama has undertaken. we want to get busy and start reversing this. the enthusiasm and momentum there is no q
thanksgiving when winds. and then the market will get back to trying to figure out what is the economy, what will earnings do. from current levels i think we have some decent upside next year. lori: department stores, application software, given the hurricane and the aftermath you heard home depot, are you changing some strategies? given that disaster? >> our investors, given with the retail investors in it for the longer haul. the home-improvement retailers, they have really done well, and things are selling right now. plywood, tarps, all those things are low margin items and while they have seen a jump since sandy hit in the market has reopened, i don't know how much they're really going to get out of sandy, but they will get more out of a continuation of the economic recovery so if you are in those we want you to stay in those, but we are not trying to get our investors in and out of stocks quickly based on the aftermath of the hurricane. lori: until your talking but the treasuries, are you taking up the space, we'd advise equities? >> even though the market is pretty close, the year-end
, the military and the economy. and what's going to happen with it. >> i think it's really important that we have a president who understands the needs of all the people and isn't just focused on the wealthiest. >> i'm probably going to say jobs, especially with the insurance with obamacare because what they're doing right now is, i just don't think that washington has any comprehension what's going on. >> i want bipartisanship and people working together is my biggest issue. >> my wife is always right. >> so, it's interesting to get their perspective, even though most of them do not want to say who they were voting for and it's worth pointing out, uma, the senate race is airtight as well. republican george allen and democrat tim kaine raised combined 30 million dollars, outside groups pumped in another 40 million and at this point today, three days out, they are essentially tied. back to you. >> wow, a very, very tight race indeed. thank you very much. we'll wrap up our team coverage in florida where governor romney is maintaining the lead over the president and two key voting blocks in florida,
they could of dollars in the pocket to be doubled to invest in the economy, trade adjustment when the workers lose their jobs because of the unfair foreign competition and i let the fight pass that legislation given the training they need to get back on their feet. the so-called dredging plastic the deepening of the channels on was the key player in getting the most recent funding for that so getting results is key for the economy, and i have the honor to have served the people of pennsylvania to have earned their trust and i would ask again to have the opportunity to earn the trust and i would ask for your vote on november 6. thank you. >> moderator: speed become a gentleman that concludes the debate and we want to think the candidates for taking part in this important program. we also want to think of course monica malpass and vernon odom from action news and thank you for watching. now we have these final words from our co-sponsors and thank you so much for being here. >> i of the league ofwomen voters of pennsylvania citizen education fund thinks the candidates for participating in this d
